Take Control of the Road with VW 4MOTION


Volkswagen AWD vehicles are becoming pretty popular with Irvine drivers. That’s because each AWD Volkswagen automobile is equipped with VW 4MOTION, a system that takes all-wheel drive to the next level. What is 4MOTION, and what does it do? Let’s get into the details about this revolutionary technology and how it differs from any other all-wheel drive system on the market.

All-Wheel Drive Basics

All-wheel drive systems monitor all four wheels and distribute power between the front and rear axles as needed. Some systems do this part-time, defaulting to front or rear-wheel drive and engaging all-wheel drive when needed. The Volkswagen AWD system goes beyond that. VW 4MOTION stays on full-time so that it can react in a fraction of a second, which can make all the difference in an emergency situation. That’s part of what makes an AWD Volkswagen vehicle stand out against the competition.

How is VW 4MOTION Different?

The Volkswagen AWD system does more than even other full-time AWD systems on the market. VW 4MOTION has been closely integrated with other systems on your vehicle, like the clutch, the anti-lock braking system, electronic-stability technologies, and traction control systems, to take total control of the road and avoid slipping. The 4MOTION system in most AWD Volkswagen vehicles defaults to sending 90% of the power to the front axle and 10% to the rear axle in most driving conditions. That gives you the handling and steering control of a front-wheel drive vehicle, while providing the traction control of an all-wheel drive system.
